Music

Show: Freelance Whales, Bear in Heaven The promising New York five-piece Freelance Whales (“ornaments the customary guitar-based setup with harmonium, cello, laptop, banjo, glockenspiel, synth, and even a couple devices they built themselves”) and Bear in Heaven (“The Wall never creeped me out quite as much as this young Brooklyn foursome’s recent second album”) open for Surfer Blood as part of Tomorrow Never Knows; Bear in Heaven also plays a free in-store at the Lakeview location of Reckless Records.
